Members of the British Royal Family gathered at Westminster Abbey this morning for the annual Commonwealth Observance Day Service. For this event, the Queen repeated her sky blue felt hat trimmed with chrysanthemum feather flowers. We’ve seen this piece so many times, there’s not much new to say about it.

There is, however, much to discuss about the Duchess of Cambridge’s new hat! In luxurious grey velvet felt, this piece features a squared crown, an upturned slice brim and a charcoal silk sash around the base of the crown. We have seldom seen Kate in brimmed hats and the scale of this design is really lovely on her. The simple lines of the hat are a perfect compliment to the lace-trimmed coat and the two pieces create an ensemble that is beautifully elegant.
